Author: Swami Rajarshi Muni Publisher: Life Mission Publications Published Date: 10/15/2013 Binding: Paperback Pages: 210 In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna says: "I have delineated three paths for the benefit of humans: Karma Yoga, Gyan Yoga and Bhakti Yoga. There is no way other than these". This book is the second in the trilogy of definitive books written by Swami Rajarshi Muni on Karma Yoga, Gyan Yoga and Bhakti Yoga. Karma Yoga precedes and offers entrance to Gyan Yoga and Gyan Yoga precedes and offers entrance to the true Bhakti Yoga. These books offer an unparalleled presentation of the authentic yoga of India as experienced by a realized Yogi through over 40 years of intensive sadhana and authenticated by the ancient scriptures of India. In his book on Gyan Yoga, Swami Rajarshi Muni shares with us his immense knowledge of the Vedas and other ancient Indian scriptures to delineate the role of Gyan in our personal sadhana. The author states through direct personal experience that Gyan Yoga is not attained by acquiring various types of external knowledge, but that it is self - knowledge that sprouts spontaneously from within one's soul. By attaining the fruits of Gyan Yoga through direct personal experience, the seeker gains entrance to the highest form of  Bhaki  Yoga, Prem Bhakti. The qualifications and means for Gyan Yoga are discussed and its seven stages including how Turyaga Samadhi is gained, the seventh and final stage of Gyan Yoga.
